    Sheriff's deputies in the Florida Keys seized 70 pounds of suspected cocaine that was discovered floating in the ocean on Tuesday, just days after another bale of narcotics was found offshore. The Coast Guard originally spotted the drugs Tuesday around 2:30 p.m. and called the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Deputies located nearly two dozen smaller packages with a green "100%" marking and turned them over to the U.S. Border Patrol.

    A naked man wielding a “lengthy and pretty thick” homemade spear in Ohio was shot by deputies as he charged at them during an ambush attack, sheriff officials said Wednesday. The suspect, who was not immediately identified, came within a “couple feet” of deputies when he was shot and wounded in Center Township after a woman called to report a naked man in his 50s pounding on her door, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies first received a report of a nearby suspected arson late Tuesday and responding investigators found the residence didn’t have any heat or electricity....

    The union representing San Francisco sheriff’s deputies said Friday a number of its officers will quit or retire early if they are forced to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Under a mandate issued last month, city employees who work in the jails or other high-risk settings are required to be vaccinated by Sept. 15 or risk losing their jobs. The San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association said on its Facebook page Friday that about 160 of 600 sheriff employees are rejecting the vaccine due to religious or other beliefs, and would rather wear masks or test weekly. About 16% of sheriff’s deputies,...

    The two deputies injured during an ambush shooting in California on Sept. 12, received a call from President Trump last week as they were recovering in the hospital, according to authorities. The deputies, a 31-year-old mother, and a 24-year-old man, were in their marked patrol vehicle outside a Metro train station in Compton on Sept. 12, when police said a suspect approached the passenger-side window, shot them multiple times, and ran from the scene around 7 p.m. "This week #potus45 @realdonaldtrump called both of our deputies to check on their spirits, wish them a speedy recovery and remind them that...

    A Virginia sheriff has vowed to deputize residents in his county if the new Democratic-led legislature enacts gun control measures. Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins made the vow during a Board of Supervisors meeting last week in which the panel unanimously agreed to declare the county a Second Amendment Constitutional County. “Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions,” Jenkins wrote on Facebook before the meeting. “I plan to properly screen and deputize thousands of our law-abiding citizens to protect their constitutional right to own firearms,” he added....

    LOS ANGELES (FOX 11) - The FBI is investigating a secret society of tattooed deputies in East Los Angeles as well as similar gang-like groups elsewhere within the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, it was reported Thursday.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer gave a tepid, droning, and utterly unconvincing performance on the Senate floor this morning where he repeatedly inserted the phrase, “the Trump shutdown.” The problem for Mr. Schumer is two-fold: First, very few watched his speech. Yes, CNN, MSNBC, etc., will replay it a few times, but none of those replays will generate as much interest as a single Trump tweet. Second, and this is even more critical, the phrase “Schumer Shutdown” is trending throughout Social Media circles – a development which has Mr. Schumer’s staff increasingly troubled. He doesn’t want to be the one...

The shooter, 67-year-old David Brian Evans, had warrants out for his arrest...

    More details emerge about the case in Arizona where deputies refused to ID themselves and demanded that a citizen disarm. Several questions were brought up on Gun Watch that seemed deliberately ignored in the original stories.  Now we have some of the answers. First question, was the vehicle a marked sheriff department vehicle or was it unmarked? From an AP story on Yahoo: According to court records, the deputy and his partner stopped their vehicle, then flashed their headlights and honked their horn, a common practice used by law enforcement to trick drug smugglers into thinking the car is...
